    The (new) HD800 Impressions Thread

    After years of listening to my LCD Rev 2, i dusted off my AKG 701's plugged them in. This confirmed that they are relatively bright and that the LCD's are very very warm in comparison, not necessarily rolled off in the higher FR, but more emphasised in the lower FR. But there is something...

    Multi-IEM Review - 352 IEMs compared (Pump Audio Earphones added 04/03/16 p. 1106)

    Hi Joker, congratulations on 1000 pages! Took your advice on the RE-400 for classical music thanks. They are great though I feel they are a little too warm for my taste, so can you recommend another iem up to $300 which is a little more v-shaped, as i feel i need something brighter and something...

    The Stax SR-507 Thread

    Can you elaborate on what makes the 507's more appealing than the HD800 as im considering both options at this point. What did you like/dislike about each? Also, do you find the 507's to perform better with certain music genres.

    The Audeze LCD-2 Ortho thread (New)

    Quote: +1 for solid state. I recently gave up on my maxxed Woo WA6 after i dusted off an old 90's Onkyo receiver i had just sitting in a cupboard. Wow, it simply does everything better than that WA6. The LCD's have simply jumped into another realm of performance.

    The Audeze LCD-2 Ortho thread (New)

    Quote:   In my short time listening to the 3's, it was apparent that no amount of EQ'ing the 2's would = the 3's. IMO the 3's seems to breathe faster and hence offer better transparency, detail retrieval etc. They are clearly a step up from the 2's. If youve got the cash, splash it.  ...

    New headphone amplifier from Bryston

    Nice impressions Fido2. Others have also similarly commented on the BHA-1 and LCD-2 pairing. The BHA-1 is top of my amp list to purchase, to possibly mate with an M51. My LCD-2's are awaiting patiently. Are you using balanced or SE into the BHA-1?

    Subjective review of the Violectric V200 and the Burson Soloist (for use with Audeze LCD-2)

    Nice review. I was going to audition the v200 along with the mjolnir but now will add the soloist to the list. You said the soloist seemed to open up the soundstage, i assume as compared with the v200. Are you able to elaborate further. Does the soloist still portray the lcd's arguably inherent...
